No, I have not run this cmd before. I'm trying to run it now and I'm getting the error listed in my first post.

It would be desirable to know the NNMi version along with the patch detail.


One reason you may encounter this error, is if you are running the command as a non-root user (non Admin account in Windows, or UAC enabled OR non-root user in Unix).



Hope this helps.
